broiled tomatoes

Last night I served these tomatoes with the asparagus alfredo. They are also quick and very yummy.

Ingredients
round tomatoes-, about 2" in diameter
mayonaise-about 1T per tomato
dry parmesan cheese (the shaker kind you buy in the pasta aisle)-about 1T per tomato

Directions
1. Cut tomatoes in half (through the middle, not top to bottom) and place on a broiler pan
2. Stir mayonaise and parmesan cheese together. (If it is not a very thick paste, add a bit more cheese--it should be the consistency of cream cheese frosting.)
3. Spread evenly and to the edges of all the tomato faces. It is usually about a 1/4" coating. Don't skimp on it!
4. Place under the broiler, broil about 2 minutes till it suddenly turns a lovely golden brown.
5. Serve and listen to the raves!
